Most people have some idea of the meaning of the words sadism and masochism, but for few people does their understanding go beyond rather vague ideas such as inflicting, or enjoying pain. Even fewer people ask themselves what is behind such behavior, and this applies even to healthcare professionals and therapists. In non-technical language, accessible both for the professional and layman, this book gives a clear picture of the underlying pathology of sado-masochism, its effects, and how it can be treated. It also examines other key, psychological, defence mechanisms--such as hysteria and projective identification--and looks at their relationship to sado-masochism.

The author draws on many years working with children and families in education, as well as nearly 30 years of analytical practice, to give insight into the underlying dynamics. From his clinical experience, he has come to the conclusion that sadomasochistic pathology is a far more widespread and serious problem than is generally recognized. The book uses detailed case material to examine the way in which the problem interferes with relationships and emotional growth in the individual's everyday life, and how this has profound effects on society as a whole.
